Guest: Senator John Edwards
George Stephanopoulos: what's your problem with Lieberman Iran Are All Crazy Terrorists resolution?
Sen. John Edwards: it's obviously an attempt by the crazies to gin up an attack on Iran

Edwards: i care about stopping Commander Stupid before he kills us all
Stephanopoulos: can you win
Edwards: i'm the only one who can win in North Carolina
Stephanopoulos: but the polls have you behind there
Edwards: yeah but I'm cute
Stephanopoulos: you keep hinting Dems would be nuts to vote for a black man or a woman
Edwards: look we have to win in 2008 and there are a lot of people who will only vote for a white southern male
Stephanopoulos: you have no money
Edwards: when i'm the nominee i will have beaten celebrities Obama and Hillary and then I will beat the rich dude Romney
Stephanopoulos: you remind me of karl rove why can't we unite America like we did when we all loved Rudy Giuiani
Edwards: i'm trying to unite America behind me!
Stephanopoulos: that seems so egotistical -- why can't you be a good democrat and be submissive and concede the election now
Edwards: i'm sure the media would love that but I intend of seizing the government back from rich elitists
[ break ]
Stephanopoulos: is Hillary's campaign dead?
George Will: she is slippery
Stephanopoulos: she danced around on illegals
Dionne: there is an angry minority will vote on this issue alone and so sad they would probably have voted for her and now they won't
Stephanopoulos: sure they would have
Dionne: it’s weird she owned that debate until the last few minutes
Stephanopoulos: what else
Dionne: Edwards needed to make himself the story and now he has
Brownstein: this is the moment to make a move it's now or never for every who is NotHillary
Stephanopoulos: so we can write her off
Brownstein: no she will be the nominee
Gerson: plus this is good because unlike obama or edwards she doesn't hate america and is appealing to all-important wingnut vote
Stephanopoulos: we have no women on the panel of course so we'll have to turn to the closest example George Will what say you
Will: when i was at the manicurist the other day with my girlfriends they all said they love hillary
Dionne: but when i was at a pillow fight Saturday the girls said they don't like that she wants to leave a residual force in Iraq
Brownstein: but i was at the salon and some of the women like Obama
Stephanopoulos: my black friends say that too
Brownstein: non-college women will put her over the top that's what my chick friends at the bowling alley say
Stephanopoulos: the country wants changes this is good news for the Republicans
Gerson: actually i disagree i think the Dems are clearly the change types
Stephanopoulos: well how can we save the GOP??
Gerson: they're in a funk -- they're bummed we need a candidate to remake the image of the party like we do every time we run for President
Will: all elections are change elections so yeah i expect the Democrats to win in 2008
Stephanopoulos: this is bad news for the Dems! Can they blow it??
Dionne: the Republicans are doomed
Stephanopoulos: will no one show the GOP love??
Gerson: look at SCHIP it's so dumb
Brownstein: all politics is bad!
Stephanopoulos: why is that?
Brownstein: it's the ‘Great Sorting Out’
Stephanopoulos: man that's catchy
Brownstein: we need a man to unite America!
Stephanopoulos: Rudy Giuliani!
Will: i want us to lose i prefer to bitch from a minority position
Stephanopoulos: what about a magic negro?
Dionne: but bloggers don't want that
Stephanopoulos: what do they want?
Dionne: Hillary cause she's a fighter
Gerson: this election will turn who is stronger on AIDS and malaria in Africa
Brownstein: there's a picket fence divide and you don't want to sit on the middle of that one
